Dunhill: Amber Root with Bamboo (4103) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6091

Following WWII, briar was scarce as the Mediterranean region pulled itself together. One way to reduce the stummel size necessary for pipes was to use bamboo for the shanks, and Dunhill's pieces became affectionately known as "Whangees" — named after the bamboo canes and umbrellas of the time. Quite a long piece of bamboo has been used for this "03" Billiard, with a stretch between knuckles for additional length, which is quickly abbreviated with a short saddle stem.

One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.
